After giving birth, he plans to complete his gender transition – including surgery to remove his ovaries, The Sun on Sunday reports.
He also plans to stay single for a while – for his child’s sake.
Speaking to TheSun, Hayden, a former Asda employee, said he was concerned about how people will react to his pregnancy.But he added that he was glad he is expecting a baby – something that he hopes will inspire other people “to be happy in themselves”. He said:
“There are a lot of small-minded people out there. I think people will judge me because I came out as trans and now I am pregnant.”
“People think you can’t be a man and have a baby, but it isn’t that simple.”
